in city government is issues come up unexpectantedly and there are some other thing that comes up, so whatever we adopt of course hopefully is subject to some modification and i would simply encourage all of the commissioners to make sure that if there is anything else that you would like to include in this that you let our staff know and that you let vice chair avalos' staff know and we don't want to leave any of that out. so again i appreciate the discussion and we will be working on this and come back to these two items at the next commission meeting. madam clerk if you could please call item number seven. >> item number seven executive's officer's report. >> miss miller. >> we have election of officers in january -- i really don't have a report unless you want to talk about the joint hearing that we had with the sf puc. we are looking for dates in february for the next one but other than that that concludes my reports. >> commissioners, any comments or questions? >> any member of the public what would like to speak? seeing none public comment is closed and i'm not sure when to m

how we accurately inform people in the city around the value of this program. >> thank you commissioner olague. president carter also wore a button down sweater when he made that statement. >> did he? >> it's important to note that ronald regan removed those solar panels from the white house. i am unclear on the agenda and on ours it doesn't mention any possible action item, but on the document for the public utilities commission it does and i think we want to make sure we're either today or the next puc meeting but i hope that's the plan, the framework of the plan can be adopted. >> i would like to make a comment. >> commissioner torres. >> first of all i never believed the hit pieces against you commissioner olague. >> thank you. >> and the man that defeated carter thought redwood trees caused pollutions and number three i don't think the staff is naive and to suggest that is inappropriate. they have been working very hard in this effort -- >> i -- >> i'm not talking about you. i am talking general in response. i believe the process is organic and i believe they do ta

, that was the argument that the city made on the big bike plan and they got slapped down by the dort when they made -- court when they made that argument. >> president chiu: if i could respond to that the code refers to what is described as quote minor alterations for example new -- landscape, filling of earth and then it lists a number of minor alterations of land. again, colleagues, in case you hadn't had a chance to read other exemptions, it refers to the new gardening, filling of earth, minor alteration in land water -- officially designated wildlife management areas, minor -- having no permanent effects on the environment, minor trenching or backfilling and then goes to other descriptions that aren't qualified with the word minor. so if your suggestion is that we have to read the word minor into a minor creation of bicycle lanes, it just doesn't seem to be backed up in the statute. >> i'm not following what you're saying. i think the preamble to that is minor. those other examples you cited mostly have to do with landscape and gardening are examples of things that would be typically -- or that

're accountable to the tax payers and the rate payers of city and county of san francisco. >> thank you president torres. just a clarification on the action item before us if there is one or for the later meet something. >> the sfpuc commission agenda provides for them to discuss and take action, so our understanding is that the commission secretary would call the roll for the sfpuc so that they could vote on this agenda item for lafco it was just a discussion item. >> thank you. commissioner vietor. >> yes and i appreciate all the public comments that have been made and the comments too from this body and all of the work that the puc has done. i have been on the public utilities commission for four years plus and i know this cleanpower sf issue -- i think it's been eight years, nine years in the coming, and when i came on there was really this sort of sense that the puc wasn't stepping up, that the city didn't care that we weren't moving quickly enough and he we are at this opportunity to really move things forward. i think it's really remarkable and i think we all now recognize with hurrican

we had major openings in the mta, in other departments in the city that it's important that we just don't approve people, but we actually have somewhat of a process to say that we did look through the range of applicants to be able to understand the type of position we want to have in the position ideally and how to move on there from. >> commissioner mar. >> thank you. i just wanted to say i appreciate ms. miller's work over the years, but i'm in agreement with our chair, supervisor campos, it will bring us significant cost savings but really an ability for lafco to be more than it is right now and i appreciate working with jason fried as well and i hope he applies for that position and i hear what supervisor avalos is saying and it makes sense. >> colleagues, any other comments? questions? commissioner olague. >> now, i was just going to comment and if i missed my opportunity to comment on potential items -- is this the time? >> yes. >> well, i wanted to mention that i'm not sure if there are other examples of it, or how to even approach this, but in san francisco i guess there

christina, thanks for being here, christina, the truth is you never left us, all through our city wild days, our mad supervisor existence, and most of all you kept your promises ♪ ♪ what's your city's name? ♪ who's your mayor? is he rich? is he rich like we? ♪ has he taken any time to show you what you city need to live? ♪ it's the time of the season -- >> president chiu: thank you. next speaker. >> good evening. my name is barbara tangori. i've been living across the bay in oakland for several decades, but i do come back and forth, working on several campaigns. but i'm here tonight particularly for one person, who impressed me tremendously for her gutsy vote for sheriff ross mirkarimi to go back to work as sheriff of this city. christina olague, you were appointed into the position. you took a risk, and i admire you for your principle, rather than the political part of it. thank you very much. and i wish you all the very best. and i'm so glad i was here tonight because i heard a lot of wonderful things. i've never talked top pu i've never met you. i've never even crosse

in this neighborhood and people who just move throughout the city have said that these streets don't feel safe, they don't feel comfortable, please do something about it. and it took a while and it took some momentum to get us going but we finally did it. we finally brought the community together and we worked over nine months with a variety of stakeholders, local stakeholders, people throughout the city. and we came up with a plan. and that plan went before the mta board. they considered the policy merits of it and decided to pass it unanimously on october 16. again, i just wanted to emphasize because i think it's so important that we were able to engage so many people throughout the community and to come up with a plan that was balanced. and we considered several options. we considered removing a lane of traffic on oak street but oak street is very important for vehicle traffic and people throughout the city, in the western neighborhoods and as well in the eastern neighborhoods who use this street to access, you know, 19th avenue to get to the golden gate bridge or octavia to the 101 that it
